The package you afford and the profit we gain from it is not marely for the sake of our advantage. We are helping local people by funding educational, health, and economic programs administered by Somatua Foundation.
The programs we have been working on with Somatua Foundation are; “flying doctor” (held with doctor care Indonesia foundation) to help people in the remote area of Intan Jaya. This Program was pionered by Maximus Tipagau, a director of a local tour operator in Papua. He does not only focus himself on operating tourism business, but also cares about the health of local people where he runs his business. We also took part in helping people in Asmat who suffered from malnutrition with food and other needs. Another program is the development of creative economy for local community around Carstensz through coffee plantation and a small scale “Mountain Salt” manufacture.
In educational area he built school in Ugimba where formal education is still a far away dream and reading center in Timika, to back up children with their education. Besides. We fund training for the locals to prepare them to become guides for tourist who come to Carstensz.
PT Adventure Carstensz is fully support to develope community in Papua through Somatua Foundation.
